It may not win a beauty contest but it is affordable & easy to build. My finished trailer weights about 600 lbs. I built this 20 years ago we have camped in every State except, Oregon, Washington, Alaska. Been to Grand Canyon 3 times, Yellowstone 2 times, Florida about 15 times, Michigan & Maine many times. I originally pulled trailer with a Toyota 4 Runner 4 cylinder engine, now I pull it with Honda CRV 2002 4 cylinder gas mileage 30 mpg with trailer at 70 mph. I built this for our family's own needs. When children were small they slept between us in the queen bed. When children got larger I turned kitchen into a large bunk bed for the children. This camper sleeps 2 adults & 3 children very easy. Now children are gone from home bunk bed is storage for, clothes, blankets, pillows, laptop, other things. Complete Step by Step Detailed Instructions, Drawing with Dimensions to build your own camper, 5 ft wide outside measurement, 8 ft long body, 4 ft high, tongue length 3 ft, trailer weighs about 600 lbs, costs about $900 to build. Designed for a Real Queen Mattress or Queen Size Air Mattress. 2 doors so you don't have to climb over each other to get IN & OUT. Bunk Bed across the rear will sleep 1 or 3 children. If you don't want a kitchen this gives you more storage inside, if your not using it for a bunk bed. Build doors any shape you like. Build your own frame or have 1 built at a welding shop. All materials are available at Lowe's & Home Depot. You will receive PLANS on 8x11 paper not Auto Cad & not a CD. The PLANS include all the dimensions so there is no guess work, this makes building a camper trailer very easy and faster with no mistakes that will need to be changed later. Built from common material that anyone can buy at Lowe's or Home Depot. Lowe's sells 3 types of wood, white pine, yellow pine, brown color wood, the white pine is very light weight and screw do not split it. I bought a cheapo $99 table saw, $20 jig saw, $20 electric drill, $20 hand held 4" disc sander with 60 grit flap disc sanding wheels, they work great for this project. I made my own 1x2 and 2x2 boards from 2x6 lumber it saved me 60% not buying pre cut 1x2s and 2x2s from Lowe's. My 1x2s actually measure about 7/8" thick. Assemble with drywall screws they come in many lengths, strong and cheap. If you want your trailer lower to the ground use 14" tires instead of 15" tires. Plans include electrical circuit drawing for 120 volts AC. I built this camper trailer in my spare time after work every evening in 9 days and you probably can too? Saturday. I built the trailer frame with an axle from Tractor Supply Store. I attached axle to the trailer, cut & mounted wall studs. Covered inside walls with 3/16" plywood then built the doors on both sides and back. Monday after work I hinged the kitchen door & attached ceiling studs and other wall studs. Tuesday after work I covered inside ceiling with 3/16" plywood, wired the trailer for lights and outlets. Wednesday I installed the electrical switches, light fixtures, electric outlets. Thursday I insulated the walls, attached 3/16" plywood on the outside walls and roof. Friday After work I painted outside with 2 part Epoxy paint, installed window, and door knobs. Saturday I built the kitchen and added 2 light fixtures and 2 electric outlets. I covered the roof with aluminum and attached the roof vent, cut and attached wood trim outside, painted inside walls, installed door rain proof seals. Sunday Install fenders, outside lights, tires, 2" hitch, safety chains and the tongue wheel. We put in an air mattress, blankets, Coleman stove, camping equipment, ice chest, kitchen stuff, electric cords. We are ready to go camping I went to DMV to get the application form for a Vin number then mailed it in. State Inspector came to my house inspected the trailer & gave me a VIN # fee is $25. TN title will cost $8 and TAGS are $14 per year. PLANS show radius curves, you can also build trailer with 1x2 boards between the 2 walls 6" apart this is less work and works good too. If you build the kitchen into bunk beds put 1x2 boards 6" apart of closer depending on how much weight will be in the bed. You don't need extra strength for light weight stuff like, blankets, clothes, pillows, etc. NOTICE to the BUYER. This is NOT a KIT and it does not include any precut wood parts. You must be able to READ the DRAWINGS with dimensions and use a tape measure and pencil to draw lines on boards and cut them out with a SAW. Cut out the wood parts and assemble them with glue and screws. This is not a hard project but if you have absolutely NO building experience it might be hard for you. Be your own judge. There is no full size template. If YOU need a full size template do not bid on this. There are NO camera photos with the plans. Plans are drawn on a drafting table on 8x11 paper, black & white photo copies are very easy to use in your work shop to build this camper, not auto cad. I can show better details with dimensions on drawing. There is no way to put dimensions on photographs. Plans on paper are easy to use in the work shop. All camera photos are on this auction page. I have included a few pictures of teardrop campers other people have built. If YOU need help building your camp I will answer all questions. Condition: PLANS to build your own camper.
